The Coulombe Family Foundation Awards Grant to KidSafe Foundation To Provide Prevention Education Programs To Elementary Schools In Our Community
Boca Raton, FL—KidSafe Foundation (www.kidsafefoundation.org) has been awarded a generous grant from The Coulombe Family Foundation to provide KidSafe Foundation’s programs to Title One Elementary Schools in our Community. This grant will provide “KidSafe for Kids” an 8 week in school program for children ages 4 – 12, parent seminars and teacher workshops. Child abuse is an epidemic with 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually exploited before the age of 18. However, 95% of abuse and exploitation of children is preventable with education. KidSafe believes that every child deserves the right to be safe, have a voice and know how to access help. Every adult needs to be the first line of defense in a child’s safety.
“We thank The Coulombe Family Foundation for their generous grant to KidSafe Foundation to help us provide crucial safety education to Title One Schools in our community. Research shows that underserved and underprivileged children are at a greater risk for abuse and we appreciate their understanding of the importance of providing prevention education. “ said, Sally Berenzweig Cofounder and Executive Director of KidSafe Foundation
